Atlético de Madrid vs Celta de Vigo – La Liga : Atlético: Despite the loss to Barcelona on the last round, Atlético is on a great period on the season
Both defensively, where they are practically insurmountable and offensively they have a very powerful attack.
The team is coming off a win in the Europa League, where they are serious contenders to lifting the trophy, while still being on the fight for the La Liga’s title, with a spot in the next Champions League practically ensured.
The team is unbeaten as hosts, already having played 13 matches, where they’ve scored 21 goals and have conceded only 4. On the recent head-to-head record against Celta, they have 4 consecutive victories.
Celta de Vigo: Still on the fight for a Europa League spot, Celta needs to gain some points in order not to lose ground, since Girona, who is currently in 6th place, has won on the round and the difference between them is now at 5 points.
The team needs to recover away from home, because they are already at 3 consecutive losses.
The task here is one of the most difficult ones but the team will count with their good attack to try and have the upper hand against the opposition’s super strong defence, since they have already scored 45 goals so far, the same number of goals scored by Atlético de Madrid.
Atlético de Madrid vs Celta de Vigo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Certainly Atlético has total favouritism here, being in great form and being unbeaten at their own stadium with a rock-solid defence and with an attack that gained even more strength with the arrival of Diego Costa and that has Griezmann in excellent form, having inclusively scored 4 goals on his last match at home.
Celta actually has an attack that can cause some problems here, especially with Iago Aspas, but their fragile defence will certainly not be able to contain the high pace of the game and the countless chances that Atlético usually creates.
Therefore, I believe that Atlético will win here, by 2 or more goals, and they will hardly conceded, which leads me into believing that the -1.5 Asian Handicap for Atlético has a lot of value.
